Wan-Bissaka: We Kept Fighting Until the End

28 October 2018

Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka reflected on both a positive team and individual performance in the Eagles' 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

The 20-year-old spoke after the game, iterating that Palace fought hard and played well throughout the 90 minutes.

He said, "We started well, we created a lot of chances and we took those chances. Then, second half they got back into the game but we kept fighting to the end.

"The team has got confidence, especially going forward, and that helps against a team like Arsenal."

Both of Palace's goals came from well taken penalties by team captain Luka Milivojević after fouls drawn by Cheikhou Kouyaté and Wilfried Zaha.

Having uncharacteristically missed a spot-kick away to Everton in the previous game, Milivojević did well to net twice from 12 yards.

Wan-Bissaka said, "I was confident that he was going to score, so well done to Luke for getting the two [goals]."

Finishing, the defender told Palace TV, "I want to keep on doing what I'm doing. Arsenal are always a challenge but challenges help me. The fans are all good to us, they're behind us and carry us all the way."
